    Academy of Teaching Spring Conference 2022 : Pandemic Pedagogies 

    Monday, May 9th, 2022  
    8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
    Longaberger Alumni House –  2200 Olentangy River Rd.
    (Conference may be converted to virtual as COVID-19 circumstances dictate)

    The Academy of Teaching invites participants and presenters to consider how teaching during both social and health pandemics has compelled us to adapt and rethink our ways of teaching and reaching students.  In what ways have these events led us to consider new approaches to teaching as frameworks for compassionate and equity-minded education? Conference topics will combine COVID-19 lessons learned with a vision for moving forward as we continue to work towards inclusive teaching practices in multiple modalities.

    This year, The Academy of Teaching’s annual Conference on Excellence in Teaching and Learning is partnering with Innovate, the annual educational technology conference hosted by the Office of Distance Education and e-Learning (ODEE). That means that concurrent sessions for the event will include presenters representing either the Innovate and Academy conferences. The conference will be held virtually on May 5, and free registration information can be found at the Innovate conference website.

  • President Johnson to Address Academy of Teaching on the Future of Teaching and Learning at Ohio State

    UPDATE: Due to scheduling conflicts, the President’s address has been cancelled. Given the complications associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, in lieu of the typical Academy of Teaching Fall Breakfast event, the Academy of Teaching is happy to present to you a video address from our incoming President, Kristina Johnson. We have asked her to speak to the Academy directly to express her vision with regards to teaching and learning at OSU, and we will share this pre-recorded video with the Academy when it is completed. We expect to share this address in early November. In the meantime, we’d also like to take the time to reach out to Academy members at large: beyond the general topic President Johnson plans to address, if there are specific issues, questions, or concerns you’d like to hear addressed, we’ve set up this survey for your input. We’ll collate some of the more common or popular topics to share with the President prior to recording. Please provide your comments before October 20, 2020.
